Abstract or Description

Brief contribution to September 2018 issue of C Magazine on Trust. The piece responds to the question posed by the editor of how trust wagers into the negotiations required of artists and curators to complete a project? Considering that the artist-curator relationship has become almost required - even co-dependent - in the ways that art is made public, what role does trust play in establishing that relationship? How is the artist's trust different from the curator's trust? What does language have to do with it? How are boundaries maintained between artistic process and curatorial discourse? If the initiation of a project requires a leap of faith from both parties, how is trust built? What tools might one come up with to deal with situations where trust isn’t a given, or where established trust is broken?
